STERIS PATHOGON UV Disinfection System

The PATHOGON UV Disinfection System from STERIS provides assurance and sense of security that the room has been terminally cleaned to the highest standard of care and is ready for the next case. There is often a lack of confidence among OR staff that the operating room suite has been cleaned as well as it should have been. Knowing that PATHOGON was used in the room gives them confidence that a redundant or overkill step, if you will, has been used. PATHOGON UV reduces the risk of infection and cross contamination in the OR for patients and operating room staff. It delivers a calculated dose of germicidal UV-C energy in as little as 4 minutes to kill pathogens on environmental surfaces and has been shown to deliver a 3-4 log reduction of C-Diff spores and 5-7 log reduction of bacteria and viruses. The system employs a wireless controller that makes it easy to initiate and monitor cycles from outside the room and automatically tracks cycle data and usage. It uses redundant heat/motion sensors to protect staff against accidental exposure.
